When you bond Teflon with our patented Polymer Bonding Process (Process) you will get the result you need. We can make that mistake becasue the Process instead of trying to gluing Teflon, you don’t glue Teflon. Because of its characteristics, PTFE (Teflon) is one of the most used polymers. These characteristics include:
- Escellent resistance to most common chemicals
- PTFE’s has excellent resistance to heat and cold, weather
- Water resistance
- Teflon’s low friction co-efficient
- PTFE has excellent resistance to oil
- Because of its excellent resistance to all grades and types of gasoline and diesel, we use Teflon on our PTFE Tech-Patches.
With our patented Polymer Bonding Process (Process), the correct adage now is “everything sticks to Teflon”!
Almost anything can be bonded to Teflon
In this picture the base is a 12″ x 12″ square of Teflon. The white pices is also Teflon. There are two pieces of metal bonded onto the Teflon base. On left, you have carbon steel, while the metal square on the right is aluminum. In the top right corner, a piece of HDPE pipe is bonded onto the Teflon square. Finally the reddish piece is silicone rubber.
With the Process, individuals and companies will be able to use polymers in ways never before available. This ability to combine polymers means new, more effective, solutions are now available to solve old problems.
In the polymer universe, “How to glue Teflon?” is one of the primary searches on Goodle. Theres has not been a good solution to glue PTFE. Purposes of polymers are expanded. The utility of polymer is greatly increased. Our patented Polymer Bonding Process (Process) will bond Teflon (PTFE), to itself, to ANY other poly and/or almost to any other substrate (everthing EXCEPT glass, stainless and or alloy steels).
Steps to bond Teflon to Teflon or to any other surface
- Abrade the Teflon surfaces to below the sheen. If the other surface rough it to below the sheen. Rough any other substrate.
- Clean the reidue off with any cleaner that will not leave a residue
- Saturate (make wet) the Teflon and any other poly surface with the Poly Prep. Let dry.
- Spray our catalyst (the Activator/Accelerator) on one of the surfaces. Let dry.
- Warm both surfaces with a hair dryer or heat gun to about 120 degrees F, or, by touch, just below hot.
- Apply the SI adhesive to the “other” surface using small concentric circles. For maximum strength, cover the entire surface.
- Firmly press the two surfaces together.
You will know that the Process is working when the Teflon gets hot. This heat is an exothermic reaction of the bonding process. When the heat dissipates, the item can be put in use. If the finished piece will be in a high stress environment, let the piece cure for 24 hours.
What kit do I need to bond Teflon?
You will need a Poly Kit to bond Teflon. With a Poly Kit you will receive:
- One of our SI adhesives
- The surface primer, our Poly Prep
- Our catalyst, the Activator/Accelerator (AA)

Our most informative video
e developed the Process in 2016 and started researching. We are still researching. At this point our Teflon® offers the most complete video we have on the Process. The video below should answer all your questions on the Process and on how to bond Teflon, to itself and/or to any other substrate, though there is still the critical fact at the bottom of the page.
What is an SI Structural Adhesive?
Final note: The Process has always worked. As importantly, there has never been a reported failure of a bond creates by the Process.

I didn't even realize that what I was trying to repair was teflon. I was trying to fix my deck. I thought it was wood. Of course, it didn't occur to me until MANY failed attempts to glue the 'wood' together, that I remembered putting waterproof sealant on it. I looked it up and it had teflon in it. I coated my whole deck in teflon! Luckily, the section I needed to fix was relatively small. I primed it first with the prep, followed the instructions and it finally worked. I probably shouldn't have put so much sealant on, but it worked out in the end.
